General OBHC-oriented papers or conference-theme focused papers are invited. Themes include but are not limited to:

  • New technologies, AI, and algorithmic technologies in healthcare contexts: How are AI technologies understood and used across healthcare contexts? What kind of ambitions and expectations accompany AI technology in healthcare systems?
  • Collaboration around new technologies: What are the consequences of implementing new technology for collaboration and coordination within and across organizations?
  • New technologies – new power dynamics? How do new technologies impact relations of power between e.g. patients, relatives, healthcare professionals and managers?
  • Emotions such as trust, doubt, excitement, or worry in using new technologies in healthcare contexts for e.g. decision-making, assessments, evaluations, or prioritizations.
  • Workarounds, articulation work and functionally invisible work in implementing new technologies: Who practices this work? When and under which circumstances? What are the potential benefits and drawbacks of making such work more visible and recognized?
  • Expertise and innovation: How do emergent technologies and/or organizational innovations relate to existing infrastructures of knowledge and expertise?
  • Division of labour and boundary work: How do healthcare organizations and systems respond to emerging personnel crises, innovations, and changes in governance modes?
